ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- In the spirit of Christmas, the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt recently presented prayer cards to members of the Orangetown Police Department to keep them safe while in the line of duty.
Blauvelt Dominican Sister Loretta Lynch, along with President, Sister Catherine Howard, presented Orangetown Police Chief Kevin Nulty, Sgt. Michael Boysa, and Capt. Donald Butterworth with St. Michael The Archangel prayer cards for all of the officers in the department.
“I was grateful to stand with the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt and honor our Orangetown Police Officers by assuring them of our prayers that St. Michael the Archangel will continue to guide and protect them in the line of duty," said Sister Loretta Lynch. "Thank you to Chief Nulty, Sgt. Boysa, and Capt. Butterworth for visiting the Motherhouse and spending time with our Sisters. We truly are grateful for your service.”
On the each card, there is a photo and prayer of St. Michael The Archangel, along with the name of an officer, and a Blauvelt Dominican Sister who is praying for that officer.
Fellow Blauvelt Dominican Sister Theresa Lynch added, “At Christmas time, we wanted to show our appreciation for all that the Orangetown Police Department has done for our community.”
